Testimonials

“The feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. The LVT newspaper floor is a huge hit. Because of it, we've named that room The Front Page. The modern furniture and the pops of red everywhere had staffers mouths agape. I've seen more collaboration and huddling in the past two days than I've seen in the past year and a half. It's not just that the space is beautiful and energizing, it's that it reflects our future and lets us work the way we've wanted to and need to. You all made me look like a design genius, by narrowing my choices so I couldn't go wrong. I wish you could have seen the faces on Monday morning. It was tremendous.”

"I have known Angie and worked with the iS design team of professionals for over seventeen years. We have worked on countless projects together for many clients during those years. My focus in commercial real estate brokerage has been Agency Leasing for institutional owners of office and flex product, our team represents millions of square feet of some of the highest profile buildings in the market. The iS design team has helped us strategize, design and win many lease deals for our collective clients due to their complete understanding of the market and knowledge adjusting to what tenants and landlords require for their respective space. Tenants have told us after the transaction was complete that the only reason they chose our clients building was due to the service and expertise provided by iS design. When working with new clients we always recommend iS design as the design team for the project as the experience and level of detail they provide is unmatched in the market."

"In our business, we find that we get the best results for our clients when we're able to have a true partnership with them. We bring our expertise and experience, they bring theirs and we end up with something better than each party alone could have done. Such was the case with working with iS design. We had a true partnership in which we were encouraged to bring our vision to the table and the folks at iS didn't just take that and run with it; they partnered up with us. They brought their expertise in areas we had little-to-none, and they actively listened and reacted to ideas we had. The time we spent with them was invaluable and it led to an amazing new office space that is not only aesthetically beautiful and impacting; it has also transformed the way we work as a company."

"Raleigh Periodontics and Implant Dentistry recently moved into our new office building designed by Mark Valand of iS design. Simply said, it is beautiful! Mark and his design partner, Angie Davenport, really listened to our wants and needs in the design process. We knew the building style we were drawn to, but Mark’s understanding of classic architecture resulted in a timeless look that exceeded our expectations. From the shell design to the crown molding and trim, Mark hit a home run. Mark and Angie’s team approach to architecture, design and interior décor works extremely well. Angie’s design selections are so relaxing and welcoming, our patient’s rave about the look and feel of the interior. She really put the icing on the cake. I think everyone involved in the process has walked away proud of the results. I certainly have."

"Angie and I created my new office for Family Dermatology. We had fun picking colors and flooring, including some unusual choices which paid off nicely. The back restroom wrapped in a forest scene was my favorite, though some of the exam room choices were colorful and look great too. I cannot "see" what things will look like, so Angie was my guide. She was super easy to work with. We even came in a little under budget. The final product looked great - see for yourself!"

"We have worked with iS design Team for 12+ years.  Megan McAuliffe is our account manager and she always has a smile on her face even on a project with a tight turn-around time that we sometimes bring her.  In those projects and all the others, she has been able to provide great insight, thoughtful planning and delivers on-time.  Our business has prospered and grown because of the service she is able to provide our customers. Also, when we are talking to other brokers and their clients about an office space and they ask which architect we work with on that building, and when we mention iS design, the comments have always been positive, knowing we will provide them with a quality space plan and end result."

"I have had the distinct pleasure of working with iS Design for over 10 years and during this time I can honestly say that they are far and above all the other companies I have been associated with. The dedication and professionalism they exhibit on a constant basis is unmatched by any of their competitors. Whenever a question comes up or I have an issue they are always there and stay on the issue until it is resolved. The entire staff at iS works as a team and are always there when issues arise, but throughout the years I have mostly worked very closely with Megan so she has become my favorite. I strongly recommend them."

There is no question that Megan has a firm grasp of the needs and wishes of each client. Megan displays an elevated level of effort and enthusiasm toward keeping the project on schedule and within budget parameters. I would without hesitation recommend Megan and iS design for any design and construction administration projects you may have in the future."

We partnered up with Angie and Maggie from iS design to convert a former dark and aged mattress store to a modern, sleek medical office with plenty of light, flowing bright colors and efficient use of space. They are very good at listening to your needs and ideas and add their own magic to make it a reality. I would definitely recommend them."

"Each year we do 60-80 office upfits throughout the Raleigh Durham market. We interact with a number of different design professionals and we have learned to be successful as a designer in the upfit space you have to be able to respond to landlord and tenant requests quickly and also understand the clients budget and design a space that meets that budget. We have found iS. Design to be one of the best in the Raleigh Durham market at doing this. Their designs are always efficient, easy to understand and capture the clients wishes cost effectively. When clients ask us to refer a design professional to them, iS Design is always one of our "go to" referrals."
